FRS Reemployment after Retirement
Reemployment after Retirement
All new employees are required to confirm their retirement status under the Florida Retirement System before starting employment with the District. If you are initially reemployed on or after July 1, 2010, you will not be permitted to participate in a State of Florida administered retirement plan to earn an additional (second) retirement benefit.
Pension or DROP Members:
After you retire under the normal or early retirement provisions of the FRS Pension Plan or any other existing or state-administered retirement system, you may work for a private employer, a Florida public employer not covered by the FRS, or a public employer in another state or covered by another state’s retirement system, without affecting your retirement benefit. However, there are certain reemployment limitations that affect your retirement benefit if you are employed with FRS participating employers during the first 12 calendar months after your effective retirement or DROP termination date. For the first 12 calendar months, you cannot earn a salary from any FRS participating employer in the same month you receive retirement benefits from the FRS unless you qualify for an exception (retired before July 1, 2010). This reemployment restriction applies even if the particular position you hold is not covered by the FRS for membership purposes. For additional information, refer to FRS’ “After You Retire” brochure or call FRS Bureau of Calculations at (888) 738-2252.Investment Plan:
If you are an Investment Plan member who has terminated FRS-covered employment and taken a distribution of any kind (lump sum, rollover, annuity, etc.), you are considered a retiree. Returning to work during the first 12 calendar months after taking a distribution may require you to pay back your distribution or impact your ability to receive additional distributions from your Investment Plan account (if any balance is remaining). For additional information, refer to FRS’ “Working after Retirement” brochure or call FRS Financial Guidance Line at (866) 446-9377.

A Message from Patricia Howard
The Office for Employee Benefits, Assistance and Risk Management wants all employees to be healthy, in mind and body, so they can be ready every day to do their best for our students, employees and community.
As you access healthcare services, please remember that the District is self-insured for all medical, pharmacy and behavioral health services. Therefore, spend wisely, whenever you can use generics, see a primary care doctor instead of a specialist. Consider utilizing the services of the onsite Employee and Family Health and Wellness Centers, which includes primary care, lab, x-rays, and generic medications. Co-payments are waived for services provided by the Health and Wellness Centers.
Also, visit our wellness page to learn more about the District’s Health and Wellness Initiatives (HWI). HWI include programs to help you lose weight, stop smoking, start exercising, maintain proper nutrition and understand your health and medications. This is all good for the mind, body and wallet.
Be Healthy, Be Well
